Hot Courts  

Date:            Every Thursday evening
Time:           Drop-in (play continues from 6:30-9:30 pm)
Location:     Montclair Courts, Oakland (Mountain at Colton)
Cost:            $2 donation requested

Hot Courts happen every Thursday evening, year-round.  Simply stop by anytime between 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. (no partner needed) for some casual and fun doubles tennis.
 
The exact format varies, but generally consists of four no-ad games followed by a tiebreaker, after which those who had a bye on the previous round are brought in, partners and opponents are switched up, and play begins again.
 
The cost is only $2.00 per evening, which goes to help defray the costs of court maintenance and repair (nets, windscreens, etc.).

We will again be joining those wonderful Harbor Bay Club folks in a festive celebration of tennis and very amiable social interaction. 

This year’s event is scheduled for Friday, August 28th at 6:30 P.M. at the exquisitely beautiful Harbor Bay Club facility in Alameda.
The maximum number of MTA persons including myself allowed to register for this event is 15; a similar number of Harbor Bay Club members is expected to join the festivities. 
This is a social type of event that is suitable for 3.0 rated players and higher, and you don’t need a partner to register. 

MTA will provide food and non-alcoholic beverages, and Harbor Bay will provide alcoholic beverages and tennis balls plus terrific courts and very amiable people to mix with. Previous inter club mixers with Harbor Bay have always been fantastic, so don’t miss out on this one.

Bridging the Generations 2015       
                                       

Date:             October 11th                                     
Location:      Mills College, Oakland
Time:            10:00am to 1:00pm                    
Cost:            $10 per person 
Organizers :   Kelsey Krausen 
Register:        Bridging the Generations Sign Up


This year marks the 14th time MTA has held this tournament . . . every year since 2002. At that time, Bridget Krausen and Robin Lee were lamenting the fact that they could not get their college-age, home-for-the-summer kids out of bed and onto the tennis courts. Thus, the creation of this tournament which Kelsey Krausen has spearheaded each year since 2005 in her mother's memory. 

The following article was written by Bridget in 2002, and remains relevant for this year's event. It has been edited to reflect current information . . . .

Want to stop your teenager from being a couch potato? Is your son-in-law bragging he could whip Sampras left handed? Then sign up for the "Bridging the Generations" tournament on Sunday, October 11.

Your partner can be of the same or opposite sex, does not have to be related to you, but has to be of a different generation (tournament director reserves the right to the interpretation of this!). 

Only one member of a team needs to be an MTA member and the entry fee is $10.00 per player. 

Any member needing to adopt a kid or parent, let me know. Stop youth crime and help a kid along the road to redemption.
